The Weeping hemlock (Tsuga canadensis var. pendula) belongs to Pinaceae (the Pine family). It is a tall evergreen tree that is a variety of "Canadian hemlock" native to eastern Canada and the Appalachian region, with weeping branches. The height is usually about 120 to 150 cm, but in its natural form it is 3 to 4.5 m. The bark of young trees is reddish brown, but when it becomes old, it turns dark brown or gray and has cracks. The dark green leaves are linear and have two stomata lines on the underside. Male flowers are attached to the spikes of the axils, and female flowers are attached to the tips of the branches. The small cones mature in the fall of the second year.
